I used to drive the Deegan to work every day passing the remains of the Put. There were still may of the tell-tales still in place. Wasn't the Stella D'Oro building torn down or was that a Nabisco factory?
Is anyone young enough to remember the Silvercup bakery when it was still a bakery? You could smell fresh bread halfway across the 59th Street bridge. You have to go to the Rockland bakery if you want that smell today.
